Former President Donald Trump addressed the issue of gun safety and the need to protect children’s schools after an 18-year-old boy of unsound mind shot 19 children and 2 adults at an elementary school in Uvalde Texas. Trump spoke about how important it is to safeguard the schools of children these days. Governor Greg Abbott was also going to attend this event but cancelled his appearance at the last minute. Instead, he sent a video instead of visiting the community.
“Unlike some, I did not disappoint you by not showing up,” said Trump. Trump began his speech by having a moment of silence for the victims of the shootout. He even read out their names with the background sound of a bell tolling in the conference room. Trump spoke about Salvador Ramos (the shooter) and said that he had committed a heinous crime and he will be damned in hell. “The monster who committed this crime is pure evil, pure cruelty, pure hatred, absolute pure hatred, and while those he slaughtered are now with God in heaven, he will be eternally damned to burn in the fires of hell,” Trump said.
Trump even addressed the Democrats who are trying to take away the constitutional rights of American citizens. “Sadly before the sun had even set on the horrible day of tragedy, we witnessed a now-familiar parade of cynical politicians seeking to exploit the tears of sobbing families to increase their own power and take away our Constitutional rights,” Trump said about the Democrats.
Trump further says that the Democrats are trying to use the shooting as an excuse to impose gun control laws on legal gun owners and thus taking advantage of the people who are greaving and mourning after this horrific incident. “Let’s not pretend that those on the left are just talking about limiting one class of gun or one category of ammunition … we all know they want total gun confiscation,” he said.
The former president said that shootouts like this are proof that the citizens of America need to protect themselves and hence imposing gun control laws will be endangering the citizens even further. The former president even addressed the grieving parents. He said that there is no law or rule that can get back what the parents have lost due to the shootout. “No law can cure the effects of a broken home. There’s no substitute for a strong mom and a great dad,” said Trump.
